About the Artist: Sabre Esler

Sabre Esler is an Atlanta based artist. Her current work is focused on the architecture of thought. She is fascinated with how the mind works; the connections and pathways that lead to convoluted results. She seeks to understand why people think the way they do. How decisions add up to a web of thought. Collective thought forms societal shifts. Her process starts in sculpture and installation exploring the patterns of decision making. She translates the sculptures into other formats, to continue to manipulate the patterns and hierarchy of the structures. She is not as interested in a particular medium, but how to describe the hierarchy of pattern that the mind creates by paradigms of thought.

Her work has been showcased in solo shows in Boston, Knoxville, Charleston and Atlanta. Alexandria Museum, LA awarded her an Honorable Mention in 2016. Also, in 2016, she was accepted to a juried show at Art Basel, Miami. Lelia Mordoch (Paris, Miami) took her pieces for a group show in April, 2017. This winter she will again show her work at Art Basel. She completed her first site specific installation with Hambidge Creative Hive. Her work is in permanent collections at SunTrust, The Federal Reserve Bank, Ritz Carlton, Miami University, Tufts University, Hilton Hotels, to name a few.

Sabre, an Ohio native, graduated from Miami University, Oxford OH with a BFA in graphic design/illustration and a minor in biology in 1987. She continued her art career, first in advertising and design and began painting in 1995. She completed her MFA in painting from Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), Atlanta in 2015.
